recording of 'Ozma of Oz', by L. Frank Baum.
Read by Judy Bieber
Ozma of Oz was the third title in the Oz series by L. Frank Baum. In this book Dorothy is shipwrecked and lands on the shores of a fairy country that adjoins Oz, the land of Ev. There she meets Tiktok, a wind up mechanical man, a talking chicken, Billina, and Ozma, the girl ruler of Oz who is leading a quest to rescue the royal family of Ev from their captivity by the Nome King. Dorothy is also reunited with her old friends, the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion. Together the adventurers travel to the Nome King’s underground kingdom and have many exciting adventures before returning to Oz, and for Dorothy, eventual return to her family in the “civilized” world.

This is one of my favorite books in the series. As usual, the good guys are good, the bad guys are bad. The back story on this is the darkest in the series so far, and breaks a lot of Baums own early rules regarding scary stories. I think the dark side of this book makes it more interesting though. Required reading for any fan or lover of Oz. Brilliant! The recording is a little flat, but the content more than makes up for it.
